WTF: Obama is a fucking moron, spends $1 billion on drugs

There are some days I can get through with never getting pissed at Obama, never having to hear his name, never having to think about the way that he is ruining this country.

And then there are days like today, when I read something which pisses me off so much that I wonder how the fuck these idiots ever came to power, how any individual in this country does not seem them for the incompetent self-aggrandizing idiots that they are.

Obamacare was, in part, designed to screw the pharmaceutics companies. The number of times I have heard about how drugs are cheaper in Canada or Europe etc.. recently I had an idiot of an economics professor tell me all about how the drug companies are actually a cartel. Fucking moron.

Shockingly, if you screw the drug companies, they don't have the economic incentive to develop new drugs. This is capitalism at the kindergarten level (still, much too advanced for the current administration). Of course, the way that the NYT puts it is this:
"Promising discoveries in illnesses like depression and Parkinson’s that once would have led to clinical trials are instead going unexplored because companies have neither the will nor the resources to undertake the effort."

I goddamn hate the NYT.

Back to the idiot in the White House.

Because current regulation means that the free market is not allowed to work properly, and drug companies cannot recoup the costs of development in many cases, the federal government is planning on putting $1 billion behind its own drug development center.

Let me repeat that. The government is getting into the business of competing with drug companies in the pharma industry. If "big pharma" scared you, you should now be pissing your pants.

The damn thing is called The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. Its something straight out of Atlas Shrugged (which you need to read if you have not). Seriously, I am sure they will assemble a panel of the "intellectual elite" and those friendly with the administration to run this thing. Ayn Rand could not have written it more perfectly.

This is what we now expect from this administration, boneheaded policies which fuck up the free market, which are then "fixed" by even more government spending and idiotic policies.

We're screwed.
